Update on murder investigation – Marlow



As you have most likely seen in the media, at around 6.30am on Wednesday (6/7) officers were called to a property in Ragmans Lane.



When officers arrived they were confronted by a man. He assaulted a police officer, who was taken to hospital and has since been discharged.



A woman’s body was found at the scene and she was sadly pronounced dead. Her next of kin were informed.



A post mortem took place on the victim’s body yesterday (7/7) and the cause of death has been determined as blunt trauma head injury. The victim was then set on fire at the scene of the murder.



Although formal identification has not yet taken place Thames Valley Police believe the victim is Albertina Choules, aged 81.



A man was arrested on suspicion of murder on Wednesday and he remains in custody at this time.



Commander for the Local Policing Area of High Wycombe, Superintendent Ed McLean, said: “My thoughts are with the victim’s family at this very difficult time.



“I understand the community is in shock and disbelief following this incident, but I want to reassure people that we are conducting a full investigation and that enquiries are continuing.



“I would like to thank you for your understanding, cooperation and support during this difficult time.”

Senior Investigating Officer, Det Ch Supt Gilbert Houalla continues to appeal to anyone who might have any information about this incident to get in touch by contacting the non-emergency number 101.



If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
